Monster Kolor Application Instructions

1. Wipe figure down 2-3 times with 70% rubbing alcohol THROUGHLY ! (even in the hard to reach areas) No Primer Required.


2 Pour color directly into airbrush..For brighter color application shake up & spray white base as your first coat and then layer your colors on top of the white.

3. Layer your colors in sequence from light to dark. Example : White,Yellow,Orange,Blue, Purple,etc
Color can be poured back into bottle to eliminate waste

4. After Colors are applied now you can add specialty paints direct over paints. Example : Pearls,Flakes,etc

Note : the colors will appear dull in appearence up to this point. Dont worry this is correct.


5. Clear Coat : Use in a well ventilated area! Must use an OSHA approved respirator while spraying. This is a 2 component system. It is mixed 2:1 ( 2 parts clear 1 part activator) . Mix small amount with mixing cup provided. For micro mixture please mix 1 part clear ½ part activator.

NOTE: If you are using matte clear coat use one light coat to achieve matte effect. If you apply heavy coats it will want to look glossy.


Usually, 1 coat of clear is all that’s required for the desired gloss level. If you chose to do 2 coats please allow 15 minutes wait time before 2nd coat of clear application.

6. Place figure in a dust free environment at 60 degrees or warmer for 24 hours to cure.

7. If your going to store Monster Kolor for a long period of time between uses I recommend placing the cap plugs back into the bottles to avoid air getting into the bottle and possibly evaporating the solvents out of the paint.

The clear coat has yet to reach full cure, but is still more effective than anything I've seen. Is it some sort of epoxy?
Jack , just be sure its kept 60 degrees or above during the drying process. Its a activated system to provide ultimate durability and gloss. Please show off your project.

This here's central florida. No way is the temp going below 60. I'll show off as soon as I have a camera. It's a pink glittery M1 Pestar, and I'm so proud of him I might call him my spirit animal (even though I didn't use your actual paints on him). But I might be even more proud of my upcoming marmit ghidora with gold body and rainbow wings.

I'll be looking forward to seeing this next figure, Jack. You should try and take some better pics of the Gorgos for everybody ;)

Hi Matt, In your guide you state " Wipe figure down with 70% rubbing alcohol". I assume this is to clean any mold release left and slightly etch the surface so paint will adhere well. Do you recommend this for resin as well ? Also what does the 70 % refer to ? Thanks, Bob
I used undiluted alcohol, and had no problems.
You should already be cleaning off resin pieces before painting to remove any mold release agents, which are much more apparent with resin than vinyl. 70% is the amount of ethanol or isopropyl in the mix out of the bottle... basically just off the shelf rubbing alcohol.
